Abstract Works


I begin a group of canvases, working on several of them at once, trying out different colours and compositions. As the work continues I focus on manipulating the materials, pouring, airbrushing, sanding, scraping, layering, each action subtly altering the color or composition.

Colours and patterns that occur in both nature and synthetically begin to interact along the border of consciousness of the visible world. Inspiration becomes enhanced by what is being apprehended, no matter how ordinary it appears.
